People often linger upon two things while choosing a yoga teacher training course i.e. either you choose a yoga school or a preferred location. If someone chooses their yoga teacher training in Nepal, it means they have chosen the best of both worlds i.e. one of the best yoga schools and also the best location. There are people who believe that authentic and genuine yoga schools are available only India; they certainly have not visited Nepal.
Nepal not only shares the border with India but both these countries have so much in common like the official language of both the countries is written in Devanagari. The second similarity these two countries have is Buddhism. And not to forget, yoga is also a part of both countries. Hence, the following article will talk about why yoga teacher training in Nepal is also a well-thought out decision for aspiring yogis.
- Spirituality is ever present: Apart from being the birthplace of Lord Buddha; Nepal is also home to many other temples that belong to the Hindu gods. With the huge number of temples, stupas, etc. there is a spiritual aura in the country which is hard to ignore. Since yoga and spirituality go hand-in-hand, Nepal is certainly an apt place to begin the yogic journey.
- Getting lost in the Himalayas: You may find hills anywhere in the world but what you may feel after seeing the beauty of the Himalayas is something that can never be expressed in words. All you can do to live in the moment is meditate. The crisp air of the Himalayas will help you open the chakras of meditation as they have been helping the yogis. It will help you satisfy your mindfulness. The vastness, openness and the sheer magnificence of nature has a soothing and calming effect on your soul which enhances the yogic practice.
- Modest at pricing: Whether we talk about yoga teacher training or any other yoga courses, or food, accommodation, traveling and even yoga retreat in Nepal, the prices are more or less moderate. Besides, the pricing of your course will be inclusive of your accommodation and food. It may have a complimentary course or even Ayurveda treatments to relax your muscles after hectic yoga practices.
- Upgrades the adventure: Travelling to a new place is anyway an adventure for most of us. But Nepal believes in upgrading your adventure either through its most challenging trekking routes such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Langtang Valley trek, Kanchenjunga Base Camp trek etc. or its adrenaline rush activities for adventure junkies. Its adrenaline rush activities include river rafting, bungee jumping, sky diving, climbing, paragliding etc.
If these reasons were able to give a thrust to plan a trip for Nepal, imagine the level of adventure in your life when you will get to experience all these by yourself. If you can't plan for a month long vacation, you may plan for yoga retreat in Nepal that can be customized according to the number of days you can afford.
